The Friends Of Manor Park
The friends of Manor Park will be on hand to chat about developments in the park, and over the road at Plough Green Pond. We’ll also have Outerspace, our landscape architects on hand. They are running the master-planning process known as ‘Revifify Manor Park’, which so many of you so kindly contributed to recent via our crowdfund campaign.
In order to bring you this event we’ve been supported by some very generous local sponsors. They’ve basically covered the cost of the event, so thank you very much.
Our main event sponsor
Worcester Park Tiles has kindly stepped in as our main sponsor. They are a relatively new shop on the Plough Green Parade but with 45 years of experience in the tiling industry. They have a wonderful selection of quality tiling. These are not your usual run of the mill tiles.
Also supporting the event are other local faves: Jazz Barbers, Bruce Elliot, and Dental Sense.
Jazz barbers offer mens grooming on the parade, everything from the latest hair cuts to a hot towel shave.
Dental Sense, this well-known dentist has been serving the community for many years now. They offer a wide range of private and NHS treatments.
Bruce Elliot offers a fully-managed service which includes: T-shirt Printing, embroidery digital Printing, schoolwear, polo tops, and screen Printing. They’re happy to quote on any size of job.
